You did not include the kernel version so I going to guess that it is
2.2 based.  Nor did you include your .config so we also have to guess
about how whether you configured your kernel correctly or not.

Does modprobe -l '*tulip*' list any modules?  If so, check that
"alias eth0" points to the correct module name - without the trailing
'.o'.  If there are no tulip modules then your kernel .config is
incorrect or you did not run make modules_install.
